More rain?!?! We need HELP!

May 22, 2013

Poor tomatoes

Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more rain after this past weekend, we got another downpour last night! All this rain (over 7 inches this week) has really stressed out (or wiped out) our existing plants, and severely delayed planting our remaining summer crops. Our new permaculture installations have really been put to the test, and we need to fix some things to get the rainwater catchment system working better in the future.

We are way behind now, and are asking for help from our community and supporters. We have had people ask how they can help, and if they can come out to the farm for a day to work. So, we are opening up the farm for the next 2 weekends and asking that anyone interested and able come out to help get our farm back on track, even if it’s just for an hour or 2.

We will be fixing the permaculture installations that have failed, caring for our current crops, and planting the rest of our summer crops. Please email us at to let us know if you will be able to stop by and help us out!
